ON OUR CALENDARS  

Ongoing - Registration for Second Semester

 

2021-2022 BOARD RECRUITMENT

We’re recruiting parents to join the board for the next school year! If you are looking to support the school more, are interested in learning more about the behind the scenes running of the school, and have great organizational skills, please consider joining us next year. We have a lot of fun while making sure the school runs smoothly. The deadline to indicate interest is Monday February 15th.  Serving on the board is very manageable in terms of time and there are roles that suit a wide variety of interest, skills, and availability.  You can find more information about the board positions here and you can fill out an interest form here. If you have any questions, please email Steph O’Grady, Secretary of the Board.

 

REGISTER FOR SECOND SEMESTER 

Registration is still open for the second semester! If you registered only for the first semester and would like to continue, please complete the quick registration process here. We hope to see you all back for a fun and informative second semester! We were able to get enough interest for our Virtual Baby Play Class on Thursdays 12-1:30 PM, for parents with babies between 4-12 months.  If you have a little one at home and can take an extended lunch hour we hope you’ll join us!  

 

HEATHER SHUMAKER TALK STILL AVAILABLE

In late January the San Mateo Council provided our schools with a very informational talk by Heather Shumaker, author of It’s OK Not To Share. She has graciously offered a recording of this talk to our council school families, which will be available only until February 26. There are some great tips and info on play, sharing and conflict resolution.

INTERESTED IN KNOWING MORE ABOUT PRESCHOOL CONSIDERATIONS? 

Typically Teacher Mireille shares information about Hows, Whens and Wheres of Choosing a Preschool in a live presentation at Little Wonders. Due to the pandemic we have not had any optional night classes, but wanted to check on interest. She is happy to send out info and/or present a zoom conversation on this topic if there is interest. Please email director@littlewonders.org if you are interested. Many preschools are enrolling now and in the next month for Fall Session.  

 

MIREILLE AVAILABLE FOR FREE PRIVATE CONSULTATION 

Please take advantage of this opportunity for free 30 minute consultations with Director Mireille! Consultation topics can range from sibling conflicts, eating, sleeping and discipline issues to problem-solving family concerns like childcare, return to work, and more! She looks forward to connecting with families and easing the load on other staff members. You are welcome to email her at director@littlewonders.org to set up an appointment. She is available most weekdays and evenings and occasional weekends, when needed, either by phone or zoom. If you’ve had your fill of phone and computer, Mireille is willing to meet you for a socially distanced walk and talk!  Please do reach out.
